Well It Looks Like I had To Go To Work Today After All.

Pity. I'd pretty much convinved myself that I wouldn't have to once I won that half billion dollar powerball payout yesterday. I even had my first purchase all picked out: A Sukhoi SU-27 Flanker jet fighter, of which two were for sale recently for a bargain five million dollars each.
Sukhoi SU-27 Flanker--the Ultimate Warbird

They say that it can equal or beat the F-15 and F-16, which is what it was designed to do. So I figure that once I got this, I could fly it over Washington DC and challenge the guys at Andrews AFB for control of the DC SFRA.

I think I could take 'em, or at least make 'em work for it.

Moot point though. Looks like the planes both sold since last time I checked that page, and I didn't hit the big money that would have enabled me to buy and re-arm them. Ah well...

  1. Just as well: it saves the rest of us from being absurdly jealous. :)

  2. Yeah, I had my plans dashed as well.

    Ah well, there is always next time.

  3. I agree, just as well. Besides, you would just end up hurting yourself.

  4. So, I guess that means my gig as wingman just went up in smoke as well? You were planning on buying both Flankers weren't you?

    1. Of course! You can't have a good jet fight without a wingman to keep you from getting zapped. I learned that over at Chant du Depart.
